Albany- The students and teachers at Radium Springs Middle School are still moving through the week, but without it's assistant principal.
"It's been a very, very difficult year for the school," said Superintendent Sally Whatley. Whatley approved Orr's resignation earlier this week.
According to his letter, he will under go a physical exam this month to determine if, in his words, "I'm physically qualified to serve my country in Iraq as a civilian contractor." If he is, he wrote "I will resign from my administrator contract immediately." If he doesn't go to Iraq, he'll continue working with the school system until June 8th.
Principal Geraldine Hudley and William Orr have been under investigation. Orr accused Hudley of asking him not to report abusive behavior by teachers and for engaging in abusive behaviors herself. Orr is being investigated for not reporting the incidents.
The accusations arose after Radium Springs Middle School teacher Mike Lewis was arrested and charged with battery for choking a student.
Orr has been working in the system's downtown Albany central office since the investigation started. The PSC report and the Superintendent's report are expected next week.
"I can't tell you how professional standards, what the commission will do and I'm anxious to see what the results or what the outcome will be," Whatley said.
For now, the school is trying to focus on the job of teaching children.
"We're going to do what's in the best interest of children there," she said. "Children have been receiving a quality education and we'll continue to move forward to ensure that parents know that that's our number 1 priority."
